FIELD TRIPS USA in NZ for GIANT Yellowtail Kingfish & Snapper

In the 1st episode of #FieldTrips New Zealand, we're linking up with John Donald of Catch Fishing Tackle to target giant yellowtail kingfish, kahawai & Australasian snapper in the Hauraki Gulf near Auckland. The fishing and wildlife encounters make for an incredible start to our 8-day trip. Next, we'll be living on a boat with 10 guys and 9 kayaks, fishing around remote islands 50 miles out in the Pacific for 8 days.
